After confronting this attorney about a number of errors made by him and his incompetent staff I had to hire another attorney when Luaders withdrew admitting he couldn't communicate. Payments were lost by his staff, motions contained errors, he over litigated, was inattentive, and has halitosis breath. Once I received my file I discovered he was writing legal letters that contained the business of other clients in my letter and charged me for communication that included the legal matters of another client! After hiring a new lawyer we filed for a De Novo hearing because of Luader's poor representation. I think Earl plays games like a "good ole boy" and doesn't work for the best interest of the client. I told this guy straight out I refused to pay him a single cent after the mistakes that were made. 24 months of litigation and I am still trying to clean up the mess he made of things.
